Housing Inventory Count (HIC) Reports provide a snapshot of a CoC’s HIC, an inventory of housing conducted annually during the last ten days in January, and are available at the national and state level, as well as for each CoC. The reports tally the number of beds and units available on the night designated for the count by program type, and include beds dedicated to serve persons who are homeless as well as persons in Permanent Supportive Housing.
Continuum of Care are required to conduct a Point in Time (PIT) count of persons living on the street, and in emergency or transitional shelters on a single night, during the last 10-days in January. The count must include population and sub-population data for Marion County. The PIT count should be conducted using statistically reliable, unduplicated counts or estimates of homeless persons.
